Pimply rash on face, torso, scalp. Itchy. Had headache. Heat rash or fungus?

I have pimply rash on my face, torso, and scalp it wasn't itchy yesterday but today it kinda is. I did have a 3 day head ache & the rash appeared the 3rd day. I did have the chill so I put sweats and a sweater to keep warm but I got very warm but didnt take it off because I would get cold. Could it be a heat rash or fungus?

Welcome to healthcare magic
From your description it seems more likely to be heat rash ( miliaria) than fungus.
Apply calamine lotion which will soothe the skin and will help with the itching.
You may do cold compresses. Prickly heat power also will help.
Hope this helped
Take care
